    Are You Really Protected From Scatter Radiation?

    RADPAD® is the Only Product That Protects You at Energy Levels Above 100kV.

    RADPAD® radiation protection shields are comprised of Antimony and Bismuth in a homogenous mixture enabling protection during low-energy flouro and high-energy CINE/DSA settings.

    If it doesn’t say RADPAD®, it isn’t a RADPAD.

    The Science

    Typical Radiation Attenuation Materials

    Element Symbol Atomic # Density
    Bismuth Bi 83 9.75
    Lead Pb 82 11.35
    Tungsten W 74 19.35
    Barium Ba 56 3.62
    Antimony Sb 51 6.68
    • In general, high-density materials are more effective than low-density alternatives for blocking or reducing the intensity of radiation.
    • In the same way, the effectiveness of a shielding material in general increases with its atomic number
    • Elements react differently to radiation so the most effective shielding incorporates both high and low atomic number elements

    RADPAD Radiation Protection Shields

    • Provide 95% reduction of scatter radiation exposure to the main operator, 40% – 50% reduction to other interventional lab personnel and 20% reduction to patients.
    • Absorb radiation to provide a “shade zone” reducing scatter radiation, with no negative impact to the patient.
    • Are comprised of Antimony and Bismuth providing protection during low-energy fluoro and high-energy CINE/DSA settings.
    • Are clinically-tested and proven with more than 40 third-party clinical papers validating its efficacy.
    • Are environmentally friendly containing no lead, no vinyl and no latex.
    • Are lightweight and disposable.
